I am a Clinical Social Worker and Life Coach. I’m licensed as an LCSW in North Carolina and North Dakota, with 9 years of experience working as a Psychotherapist I've worked with a diverse demographic of clients, to include working with families, specializing in grade school children teenagers, and young adults. I've also worked with clients with a myriad of diagnoses, such as anxiety, depression, ADD, ODD, relationships and adjustment issues. I possess years of experience with military service members and their families, here in the U.S. and abroad.
My approach to counseling is to meet the client where they are. I'm welcoming, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I look at the whole picture to include a client's environment and support systems to better assess the client’s needs and goals. I utilize various Evidence Based Practices and interventions, to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address depression and anxiety, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Problem Solving Therapy to address coping skills and develop problem solving strategies. Your treatment plan will be specifically designed with you for successful goal achievement. Making a decision for therapy is one that requires strength and courage. You did it! Let me help you get to your desired place of peace and joy!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Laura Shepard. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
She listens very well; I feel safe to tell her my problems. She helps me with a lot of the issues that I am having. Thank you very much!!!
Laura has brought so much self awareness to my healing journey, I look forward to everything she gives me to reflect on and have learned more about myself lately than I knew was even missing.
A wonderful woman, and a spectacular therapist. Friendly, and supportive yet direct, and to the point. Helped me figure out more about myself in 45 minutes than I’d ever known.
Always can read my mind and makes me comfortable
Laura has been an absolute God sent for me! I went from having severe anxiety and multiple panic attacks a day to having my anxiety completely under control and no panic attacks. She has helped me learn coping skills and has given me life advice. I was so nervous to start therapy but Laura showed nothing but kindness and compassion. If I ever need therapy again, I will definitely seek help from Laura again! I’m going to miss our weekly talks!
Laura has helped me over come my key issues. I am absolutely pleased and have never felt healthier.
